PORTLAND, Oregon - (See Updated news at the bottom of this page.)
Just when you thought Vietnam was becoming a trusted partner with Americans, when you thought Vietnam was civilized and cared about people, you find it may not be true at all, just another heartless third world country that still has a grudge against Americans.

Case in point:
An American from Portland, Oregon currently in Vietnam, used Vietnam’s Express Mail Service (EMS) in Da Lat, Vietnam to mail a very important package to the Philippines. In that package contained credit cards and passports for his two year old daughter and wife so they could leave the Philippines. Their passports were mistakenly left in the father’s luggage when he traveled to Vietnam. Without those passports and credit cards his wife and young daughter are homeless, stranded in the Philippines with no money and no way to receive money without identification. They rely only on the good nature of the people of the Philippines. Unlike Vietnam, it seems Filipinos have a heart.

EMS (EMS Cooperative) is owned and regulated by Vietnam itself and located on the web at https://www.ems.com.vn/. It is the m ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - After police used tear gas on protesters, an unidentified person was stabbed in downtown Portland Saturday morning. Police say the crowd outside the federal courthouse was at first peacefully listening to speakers then at about 11 p.m. Friday, people began shaking a fence. Police then tried to move the crowd out of the area but with not much success. Federal agents forceful pushed protesters back and black smoke filled the air and explosions. Live video feeds showed federal agents dispersing tear gas and flash bangs from behind the heavy metal fence set up as a barricade between the justice center and protesters. Before the tear gas was released, many peaceful protesters sang "Black lives matter" and waved cell phone flashlights while listening to speeches. Portland protests have continued for more than 50 days since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody. President Trump said federal officers were sent to the city to protect federal property, but protesters and local leaders have strongly opposed their presence. The stabbing suspect was taken into custody. The crowd grew and included a mixed group of demonstrators with vet ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - Witnesses and even national news media comment that declaring protesters rioters is untrue. In fact the scene in downtown Portland does not resemble anything near a riot. It is true that protesters in North Portland set file to dumpsters on fire and that act apparently contributed to police declaring a riot. Demonstrators in downtown Portland pushed over police fences on the 52nd. This is the 52nd straight night of protests in the Portland. An organized group calling themselves the PNW Youth Liberation Front, that seems to be leading demonstrations for the last two months, organized a protests demanding dissolution of the Portland Police Bureau. Outside the North Precinct, the PNW organization sang “Quit your job.” Most of the demonstrators left around 9:30 p.m. Police had just announced that demonstrators would be arrested if they remained in the area. The demonstrators then moved north on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to the Portland Police Association then began tipping over dumpsters to form a barricade. Police arrived at the building around 10:45 p.m., demanding that demonstrators disperse or they were subject to arrest. “Stop criminal ac ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - Federal customs detained a demonstrator in Portland in a video circulating online that showed two men in apparent military garb taking a young man wearing all black into custody, defending the apprehension by describing the man as being suspected of attacking federal agents and property. This defense came as federal authorities were under criticism for their tactics from elected officials, civil rights activists and demonstrators, including one in Portland who described being “terrified” during a similar encounter. In a statement on Friday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said that its agents had taken the action in the video and that they “had information indicating the person in the video was suspected of assaults against federal agents or destruction of federal property.” When the agents approached him, CBP said, “a large and violent mob moved towards their location. For everyone’s safety, CBP agents quickly moved the suspect to a safer location for further questioning.” The agency also disputed suggestions that they were operating only as unidentified federal agents. “The CBP agents identified themselves and were wearing CBP insignia durin ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - Last week it was disconcerting to see militarized federal officers with war weapons embedded with the Portland Police Bureau and stationed around Portland. Since then their presence brought on an escalation of violence towards protesters – an extreme response to a movement challenging police violence. This reckless and aggressive behavior has now put someone in the hospital. This protester is still fighting for their life and I want to be clear: this should never have happened. If this continues a life will be taken and it won’t matter whether a federal officer or Portland Police officer did it – it won’t bring that person back. While I absolutely condemn the federal troops’ presence in Portland and demand that they withdraw, I am not naïve enough to think that their withdrawal alone will solve the issue. Even prior to the federal troops entering Portland, reports and videos of police violently responding to protesters came out nightly. Watching things reach a boiling point, I sent an open letter to Chief Lovell asking him to de-escalate the events unfolding and to publicly explain his and the bureau’s response to the nightly protests. While we need to cont ...

Ted Wheeler has welcomed Donald Trump’s Border Patrol into our city. They are using chemical weapons on peaceful demonstrators, in violation of a court order against the use of these weapons. Last night, we witnessed even more disgusting acts of violence against Portlanders in our streets. Officers seriously injured a Black Lives Matter demonstrator, Donavan Labella, causing face and skull fractures and requiring surgery. Police held down another person while they were having a seizure, which can be fatal. All of this was caught on video. I challenge anyone to watch these videos and contain their anger. Like any human being witnessing this violence, I am outraged. I, and the people of Portland, demand to know why Ted Wheeler is allowing Trump’s Border Patrol to abuse people in our sanctuary city.”
